What to Expect During a Sculptra Treatment
More and more Los Angeles residents are turning to Sculptra as their go-to procedure for reducing and eliminating facial wrinkles. This safe and effective procedure performed right here at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica.
Best Candidates for a Sculptra Treatment
Ideal candidates for Sculptra include people who fall between the ages of 35 to 60 and have no allergies to any ingredients found in the injectable filler. Anyone with a history of hypertrophic scarring or keloid formations should avoid this procedure.
When you come to Skin by Lovely for treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to your treatment area. Then, a needle is inserted just under the skin to inject the permanent filler. Some people may experience mild discomfort during the needle insertion, but generally, no pain is involved. Several injection sites may be required, depending on your unique needs and desires.
You should be able to return to your normal activities the same day as your treatment. It is best to avoid sun exposure, however. If you experience any discomfort, apply ice packs and gently massage the treated areas.
Results typically last up to two years with touchup treatments recommended as needed.
